How To Boost Your Energy Efficiency
Landlords with the best property to let Norwich has to offer who are keen to rent their homes out for the highest amount might want to consider making their properties more energy efficient, as this will certainly make them more desirable and perhaps allow you to increase the rent a little.
There are several schemes out there that you can take advantage of in order to make eco-friendly home improvements, such as the Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation, both of which have proved very successful in helping homeowners make substantially beneficial changes to their houses.
According to the latest figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, insulation, new windows and boilers have been delivered to some 1,021,000 homes through the various packages available.
And there is still an additional £6 million available for people to apply for up to £1,600 if they choose to install two measures from a list of improvements labelled under the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.
“One million extra homes already have permanently lower energy bills – whether that’s thanks to better insulation or more effective boilers. The challenge now is to continue this drive – and our next instalment of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is coming soon,” Ed Davey, secretary of state energy and climate change, confirmed.
Typical examples that people make to improve their homes include heating, double glazing, draught-proofing, insulation (such as cavity wall, solid wall or loft insulation), or renewable energy generation like heat pumps or solar panels.
